|3DSL® requires a shared-memory architecture, which is the architecture present in all multi-core multi-chip laptops and desktops. In shared-memory architecture CPUs share a central, common memory area. In distributed computing architectures, each CPU has its own memory.|
Speedup of 3DSL® parallel for various simulation models as number of CPU's increases.
SPE10-inc. Incompressible 2-phase. 1.1 million active grid cells, 25 timesteps over 2000 days.
SPE10-comp. Compressible deadoil. 1.1 million active gridcells, 27 timesteps over 2000 days.
Forties. Incompressible 2-phase. 1.5 million active grid cells, 235 wells, 82 timesteps over 34 years.
JudyCreek. Incompressible 3-phase FCM. 623,000 active grid cells, 300 wells, 46 timesteps over 40 years.
SA-yearly. Compressible deadoil, 970,000 active grid cells, 25 wells, aquifer, 24 timesteps over 24 years. SA-monthly is the same run but with 288 timesteps.
